Went with my friends on a roadtrip. We ended in the cozy little town of Gairloch. Here we found this beautiful bistro, and the food? Above our expectations. And the personel were lovely people. I do recommend this place for a lovely bite and drink.

Had an fantastic lunch, very kind waitstaff. I had the grilled chicken burger with haggis. For the price you get a lot of food and it was very delicious! Would definitely recommend this place.

Fabulous little place for lunch. Gairloch doesn’t have a huge choice but this hidden gem is great, modern and the food is delicious.

Popped into the Steading for coffee and cakes with a largish family group. There was a good choice of cakes and our choices were very tasty. The staff were helpful and attentive. The Steading lies on the main road but there is a good car...More

Nice place, good atmosphere, great food and lovely staff. What more could you want? First ever visit this week and was delighted to have found somewhere so good in an area not exactly over run with choice. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back.
